Can't remember last time I listened to this one, but now I don't think I'll forget. First set is pretty damn good, some great versions of Peggy-O, Sugaree and Big River lending to it's solidity. But what sets this one apart is an absolutely gorgeous Scarlet>Fire. Jerry's tone and phrasing throughout are just jaw dropping in their all encompasing magnificence. Transition jam nearly blew my tires out on the way to work. Hell, even Donna's little wailing part is damn good. Probably a good thing I listened in the car, My co-workers will never know how close they came to antoher tsunami of broken furniture. This version has quickly taken its place in my list of faves quite near the top.
Even if you've only got a few minutes to listen today, I can't recommend the S>F enough.

Just a gorgeous show. The S > F is magnificent, and it really has some beautiful, haunting Donna harmonies. In addition to standouts that aren't unexpected (Bdown Palace, Sugaree, UJB, BEW, Wharf Rat, Samson ... of course I COULD just list the whole show, LOL), this could be a poster child show for "what you miss when you skip things." Lazy Lightning > Supplication has riveting jamming, and Around and Around, which doesn't tend to do much for me, is just so dynamic here. Heck, even the Space is great!

thanks for the suggestion. I've strayed from 77 a bit as I listened to a lot years ago. Tho i still have sooooo much left to hear. Once this dew is done its onto the scarlet fire.

Hmm......5/11.......there is something about that date.

I've seen 2 DSO shows and each was a 5/11/something......they did 5/11/77 here in Chico and 5/11/72 in SF in April.

Also, the first GD show with my beloved wife was 5/11/1991.

How about that!(Mel Allen)
